Cedarwood House Care Home
Welcome home to true care for elderly residents and people living with dementia, in Battle, East Sussex.
Set in the beautiful Sussex countryside, on the outskirts of the historic town of Battle, Cedarwood House Care Home is in the heart of 1066 country. This former farmhouse has been renovated to a high standard and equipped to cater for all its residents’ needs. Here we’ve combined a comfortable environment conducive to improving quality of life and a beautifully preserved property that retains its rural character and many original features.
Cedarwood House has 20 bedrooms with stylish décor and high standard furnishings. Our themed communal areas are where residents put their feet up in the company of others and/or join in social activities. These include a ‘Garden Room’, decorated with artificial turf, a fountain and walls painted to recreate an outdoor environment indoors. Our home also has sensory corridors, purpose built to provide stimulation, and opportunities to engage, reflect and re-establish old skills for our residents with dementia. Dedicated staff are always on hand to assist with individual needs and guide activities.
We are continually updating our home and the services we provide, to ensure the highest quality of care and comfort for our residents. Cedarwood House is one of two Cedars Care Group care homes based in East Sussex. The other is Derwent Care Home.
Activities & Stimulation
Varied and interesting daily activities promote wellbeing and purpose among our residents. Furthermore, each resident has a ‘This is Me’ profile, drawn up with them when they first arrive. This is Me profiles keep us aware of a resident’s existing hobbies, skills, and interests. They also guide us when we are introducing residents to something new. Find out More
We believe that every individual has his/her own story to tell. At Cedars Care Group homes, we make it our business to get to know the people we care for by spending time with them. Remembering past achievements, and the good old days, often helps to maintain a sense of self and fulfilment.
Family visits and family involvement are vital to the wellbeing of our residents. That’s why we aim to provide an environment that’s comfortable and invigorating for both residents and their visitors. Our planned activities and events are key opportunities for family participation and support. While the option of privacy is always available.
Personal Space & Personalised Care
Familiarity and reminiscence is invaluable. It keeps our residents connected with life, can ease the transition into care, and is helpful in improving memory skills. At Cedarwood House, all our residents are encouraged to personalise their rooms with small belongings and photographs. This makes a world of difference and encourages a sense of belonging.
We offer several types of care depending on the level of support required: Residential Care, Respite Care and Dementia Care. Each resident receives personalised support in accordance with his/her individual care plan, under the supervision of a dedicated home manager.
At Cedarwood House we actively seek feedback. It helps us ensure our care home continues to offer the highest quality support and care, tailored to the needs of our individual residents. Leave Feedback
